Ultimate Guide To Bloons Tower Defense 4
One of the most unique online games has been Bloons Tower Defense and you can now play version 4 right here. With three previous versions released so far you can see that the developers have put a lot of effort into making the game new and exciting.
The basic idea of the game is that it is your task to help the monkeys in their battle against the Balloons (Bloons for short). You do this by strategically placing a defense tower which then pops the bloons.
This might sound very simple, but as the levels increase so does the difficulty. To get the most out of this great game keep reading our guide and get ready to play it right here on this site.
What Is The Aim Of Bloons Tower Defense?
The aim is to get through all the different levels and helping the monkeys to kill their enemies the Ballons. The bloons take a different layout and path in each level, so every time you start a new level you have to quickly assess the situation.
You then have to place defense towers in a way that will result in all bloons being popped. But look out, the bloons are evil and can do you harm as well.
It will take you a combination of fast and strategic thinking, as there is limited time available. If you place your towers in the wrong place then you risk losing the level.
How Do You Play The Game?
At the start of each level you have to quickly asses which route the bloons will be taking. Once you have that part figured out you will have to make a quick decision to place your tower in the best place.
But if you do so where not all bloons will be passing by then you will not complete a level. Some bloons will also be a lot more difficult to kill and more than one shot will be required.
All the balloons have different sizes and colors that indicate what their superpower is. Some are faster and others take more hits to pop. Some have immunity to different towers so you have to be very careful what types of towers you place.
Your towers also have different features. You have to spend your in-game currency to use the different features and upgrade your towers. The important thing is that the towers you pick will determine how fast you can succeed or fail. Some towers are useless against certain balloons and you will quickly figure this out. That is where the whole strategy part of this game comes into play.
It will take you a little getting used to but you will find this so addictive and entertaining that failing some levels will actually be fun. The more you fail the more you learn about the different abilities you have in your arsenal.
